Prelude

(Please take this time during the prelude to quiet your hearts before God

and peacefully anticipate the movement of the Holy Spirit.)

*Call to Worship                                                         Psalm 98

Leader:   O sing to the Lord a new song,
    for he has done marvelous things.
His right hand and his holy arm
    have gotten him victory.

People:  The Lord has made known his victory;
    he has revealed his vindication in the sight of the nations.

Leader:   He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness
    to the house of Israel.
All the ends of the earth have seen
    the victory of our God.

People:  Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth;
    break forth into joyous song and sing praises.

Leader:   Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre,
    with the lyre and the sound of melody.

People:  With trumpets and the sound of the horn
    make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord.

Leader:   Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
    the world and those who live in it.

People:  Let the floods clap their hands;
    let the hills sing together for joy

at the presence of the Lord, for he is coming
    to judge the earth.

All:        He will judge the world with righteousness,
    and the peoples with equity.

Morning Prayer and Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,

the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
